Cheerio and Seltzer Diet....

I've really had to lower my expectations of myself. I'm just too sick this pregnancy. I'm on a Cheerio and Seltzer diet. I can barely exercise at all, much to my great disappointment. I sleep for at least 12 hours a day. Otherwise, I spend a lot of a time prostrate. I love to cook, but cooking just churns my stomach. Food churns my stomach. Still, I have loving, hardworking hubby to feed and a sweet, caring son to feed. So, I managed to drag myself to the store today and buy enough easy-to-make/ready-to-make dinners for a week. Plus, I needed more seltzer and Cheerios.

I look forward to my second trimester. The energy, the nesting.....

My Pollyanna view of the whole thing is: at least I have a great excuse to rest, relax, and not have to do much at all!

I remember those days well. I usually had "morning" sickness until 19-22 weeks along. :-?

Altoids really helped with my fourth pregnancy.

I wish that I lived nearby so that I could help you, Kate!

Maybe peppermints?? I'm so sorry the sickness is so bad right now. Peppermint tea helped me when I was expecting my dd 12 years ago. We'll be praying for you!

REAL ginger ale seemed to help me (you probably have to get it at a health food store). Reed's Extra Ginger Brew tastes yummy and has a lot of ginger:

Reed's Ginger Brews

They also make a variety that contains no fructose, but it doesn't have as much ginger.

Hope you get over the morning sickness soon. I am 13 weeks along; with both this pregnancy and the last one, morning sickness ended right around 12 weeks.

Oh, sorry, just scrolled down and saw that you already know about real ginger ale. :-)
